Douglas Green Chenin Blanc Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Bright gold with a youthful green glow. Brimming with a fruit salad of aromas including tropical pineapple, papaya, guava and granadilla with a subtle streak of green asparagus and figs that follow through on an accommodating mouthful of sunny ripe flavours, perfectly balanced by a frisky dry finish with lingering citrus freshness.

A fruity dry white blend that is best enjoyed well chilled for easy anytime drinking. The perfect summer sundowner, picnic or beach wine that is delicious with almost any fish or seafood, roast chicken pie, creamy pasta or soft white cheese.

“A delightful duet brimming with frisky fruity charm”

in the vineyard : Last year’s crop was very small because of the drought. This year, after a good winter rain, one of the biggest challenges we have seen is the unevenness in the ripening of the berries. The whites wines are showing excellent ripeness and acidity. Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc are front runners in this observation, with these varieties showing phenomenal quality across the board. “We’ll have brilliant fruit, richness and mouthfeel complemented by the freshness.”Meanwhile, for the red wine like Pinotage, there’s an unprecedented tannin ripeness that is going to provide beautiful tannins structure and no harshness. Heinie Nel, our viticulturalist selects grapes from defined vineyards across the Western Cape for terroir specificity and optimal varietal expression.

in the cellar : 

The Chenin Blanc was vinified separately in appointed cellars under the care and control of our Oenologist. Each parcel was cold fermented and left on the fine lees for added intrigue and richness. The Sauvignon Blanc was cold fermented in stainless steel before final blending and bottling at our cellars in Wellington.
